meditation tent (2013)

collaboration between gabriella hileman and manna pinnick 

the meditation tent uses EKG to determine the video projected on the tent as well as the colors of the LEDs inside. if the heart rate of the user falls low enough, the tent is covered with pastoral scenes of water and fields and green LEDs illuminate. if the heart rate is too high or the user moves too much, city scenes, sirens, and red LEDs will be displayed. the piece is supposed to promote awareness of the body and link natural bodily electric rhythms to a feedback system in the outside world.
